Designed by renowned architect R.S. Gerganoff, this one-of-a-kind Tudor stone home has lots of room to spread out! With its quality building materials and expert craftsmanship, this unique Tudor stands out from the crowded mid-century, aluminum-clad split-level homes on the market. The First floor was remodeled in 2004 with a chef's kitchen, open family room, mahogany paneled dining, and slate mudroom. The original deco style tile and sinks, plaster crown moldings, walnut doors, and hardwood floors have been preserved and are in excellent condition. Large living room with marble fireplace leads to bright 3 season sunroom & patio. Finished basement has oak wainscoting, working sandstone fireplace and classic bar. Master bed boasts dual walk-in closets. The 3rd floor ballroom is perfect for dance studio or playroom. All windows have been replaced and come with a transferable lifetime warranty. This home has aged to near perfection and is one of the very last of the very best.
Ypsilanti, and adjacent Ypsilanti Township, with a combined population of about 74,000, are located on Ann Arbor's eastern border. Many of Ypsilanti's residents work at the businesses and industries located in Ypsilanti; others work in Ann Arbor and surrounding communities, or eastward in the greater Detroit area.
Starting in the 1920's, Ypsilanti began to play a role in the development of the automobile, and auto production continues to be an important part of Ypsilanti's economy today. Ypsilanti really hit the map during World War II, when Henry Ford's Willow Run B-24 bomber plant became the first to produce the planes on an assembly line, turning out one bomber roughly every hour. The Yankee Air Museum and its annual Thunder over Michigan air show at the Willow Run Airport are popular destinations recounting the history of that time.
Ypsilanti is home to Eastern Michigan University, founded in 1849 as Michigan State Normal School; EMU now enrolls about 24,000 undergraduate and graduate students. With 12 parks in the city, and another 30 in the township, recreational opportunities are many. A number of the parks flank the Huron River or Ford Lake, offering access to a variety of water sports. Throughout the year, a number of special events dot the calendar; among the most popular are the Elvisfest and the Ypsilanti Heritage Festival.
Many housing styles and ages are found in the Ypsilanti area, from stately Italianate and Queen Anne examples to newly built neighborhoods.
